PES can conduct a personal property appraisal for any content within the estate. Prestige Estate Services specializes in appraisals for clients dealing with three major areas:
Death – We work extensively with trust and fiduciary advisors who need appraisals of their client’s contents left behind by the deceased. The intended use of this report could be for estate tax purposes, appropriate allocation of assets to heirs and beneficiaries, preparing for liquidation efforts and working through probate requirements.
Divorce – We work with divorce attorneys and CPAs to determine equitable division of property in a divorce.
Downsizing – We work with our clients who are moving or relocating partial or full estates. Often, it behooves them to donate or sell the items rather than move them cross country. An appraisal can help determine value or a write-off for tax purposes.
Appraisal reports are often used in legal matters such as divorces, insurance settlements, probate and charitable donations. Is it crucial that appraisers employ the highest set of standards in their appraisal review. At Prestige Estate Services, all our appraisers are compliant with the IRS guidelines and are qualified by the Appraisal Foundation’s “Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice” (USPAP).
